Training burn allows for non-emergency drills
Firefighters from Brooklin, Blue Hill and Sedgwick gathered in Brooklin Sunday for a practice training burn that removed a derelict cottage from the Brooklin Inn property. The former summer cottage went up in flames quickly after a series of interior attacks were conducted as part of the training exercises.
